Sometimes I feel like
I have lived my entire life
the way YOU thought best
Striving vainly for
your approval
Dancing my part
in your marienette dream
But the strings were always
tangled and I have never known
which limb to move and
which limb stays still
And what will I do
When you're gone and I have
to live with the consequences
of what I have chosen
When you're dead and I am
still on a strin no one is
pulling. Will I look
at my life and hate
Who I am and the
choices I made for your sake?
I am so tired of playing
your games that I have
never known the rules to
because they change
everytime we play.
I cannot justify hating my life
in twenty years because you
thought I'd be happy.
I cannot justify regret.
